Wow. I adore this. If the platypus wasn't already my favourite animal, this definitely would have changed my mind. Spectacular job :D

Wow. Thats fantastic. It does look very aboriginal though I know that probably wasn't the idea. :)

Thank you. :) I try not to be too derivative of any one style, I have too much respect for indigenous Aboriginal culture to use their symbolism, so I use my own. But the dotting technique can be found in many indigenous cultures, and it seemed to fit with what I felt from platypus. Plus there's kind of elements of different cultures in my work I guess. :)

Thanks for the fave! :)

It was no trouble. When I went to Australia I fell in love with Aboriginal drawings, they are stunning.
